help with switching to formula
Mon, 07-28-2008 - 11:30pm

I'm really struggling with pumping (16 weeks pp) and need to start to wean DS onto formula. I tried 2 bottles over the past 3 days and they were both forcefully vomited a number of hours afterwards.

How on earth do you know whether your LO can tolerate a particular formula? DS spits up a lot at the best of times, but this reaction is fairly major. I've read that sometimes their tummies just need some time to become accustomed to the new, harder-to-digest food.

I need to find something that is good enough for his development - I can't keep doing this...

Have you tried mixing BM and formula together?
